Tighter defence will be Jurgen Klopp’s first priority at Liverpool

first_img “You cannot just think about offensive things – up to now we have not scored enough goals but you have to feel stability,” added the former Borussia Dortmund boss. “When you feel this you are free for creativity and that is how football works. “A good example is the Aston Villa game (a 3-2 victory) where we scored a goal after two minutes and everything changed in that moment. “It is not the only way to get free in a game when you score a goal in the first few minutes. “Nil-nil is an absolutely normal score. You will find a way if you are patient enough to wait for the next situation and not think ‘This is like last week, last year’.” Klopp has wiped the slate clean with the players he inherited from Rodgers, giving everyone every chance to prove their worth to him as he moulds his side. “It is not so interesting what they did last week, two weeks ago,” he said. “It is more interesting for me what are they able to do on their best day. That is what I am looking for and how I try to make the starting line-up for Tottenham. “Now if nothing happens in the next training sessions I know how I want to play and we have to use these two sessions to understand a bit more. “But at the end it is only football. All these guys are able to play really good football – that is the reason they are here.” Press Association No clean sheets in the last eight matches proved particularly costly, especially when in five of the last six they had taken the lead. The limited amount of time Klopp has had to work with his players after their return from international duty – and the fact the last time Liverpool scored more than once in an away game was February – means he has concentrated primarily on making his team difficult to beat. “We have to be compact, close together in the game, and if you are always close enough with your players you always have options to help,” he said ahead of the trip to Tottenham for his first match in charge. “If you prepare for problems in the game and you are strong enough to handle this situation then you can stay in the game and win the game. “It is not the time to change many things – only to turn the screws a little bit in the right way and that is what we tried to do. “I expect to see that we have worked together, although not too often, and we can be very well organised after this short time.” Klopp intends to establish a defensive platform from which he can build a team playing in his preferred, high-tempo pressing and counter-attacking style. He also believes shutting the back door will help restore the players’ fragile confidence which has contributed to them throwing away leads and then losing their way in matches they had been dominating. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp identified defence as his priority but the untimely injury to striker Danny Ings has emphasised how much of a necessity it has become. The German’s attacking options have been reduced to Daniel Sturridge and the raw Divock Origi, who has not scored in his last 10 matches. Christian Benteke, the Reds’ £32.5million summer signing, is still at least a week away from recovering from a hamstring problem and Ings will be sidelined for a minimum of six months after a cruciate knee ligament injury. Ings, another summer arrival, is the club’s top scorer with three goals but the team as a whole have managed just 11 in 13 matches this season and that contributed to the demise of Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers, who throughout his three-year reign at Anfield never got to grips with a leaky defence. last_img read more

Key players’ injuries have further derailed Syracuse’s season

first_imgSydney Brackett sat a foot out of bounds beyond Syracuse’s goal line with her right leg extended, her shirt collar in her mouth and tears in her eyes. The junior had just rolled her right ankle while tracking down Notre Dame’s Brianna Martinez on Oct. 13, and dropped to the ground. Assistant athletic trainer Meagan Bevins tended to her and Brackett limped slowly behind the goal and to the sidelines.Across the field in front of SU’s bench, SU head coach Phil Wheddon stared blankly into the distance with his mouth open and hand on his face. Again, one of the Orange’s key players was down. First, leading scorer Kate Hostage missed three games after suffering an injury against Duke on Sept. 16. Less than three weeks later, goalkeeper Lysianne Proulx was ruled out for the season with a hip injury. Now, Brackett, a leader of the offense, was gone.“Player after player, it seems like it’s a weekly occurrence,” Wheddon said about SU’s injuries. “It’s been a little bit demoralizing for everyone. It’s been an arduous journey.”Injuries to key players have only made Syracuse’s (3-14, 0-9 Atlantic Coast) historically bad season harder. Between limited depth, players playing out of position and late-game fatigue, injuries have had a “massive impact” on SU’s performances, Wheddon said. The growing list of hurt players has contributed to the Orange’s current 12-game losing streak.When Syracuse suffered 4-0 losses to Harvard and Penn State in late August and early September, Wheddon had numbers on the bench, using seven or more substitutions in both games. In recent blowout losses to North Carolina, Notre Dame and Virginia, Wheddon has only used five substitutes due to a lack of numbers to call on.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We haven’t had the depth on the roster that we’d like to have,” Georgia Allen said. “In a perfect world, we’d have everybody fit. We can’t press for 90 minutes.”The Orange’s injuries have their biggest impact in the final 15 minutes of a game, Wheddon said. Players are fatigued and can’t always be rotated out, which results in lots of conceding. In conference play, 10 of Syracuse’s 34 goals allowed have come in the final quarter-hour of play. In consecutive games against UNC and Notre Dame on Oct. 7 and 13, SU surrendered a combined six goals in the final 15 minutes.Laura Angle | Digital Design EditorThe lack of depth also forced the Orange to play out of position. Abby Jonathan, SU’s starting center back for the first nine games of the season, was shifted to striker against Duke after Hostage went down. Allen started the season as a center midfielder, but has mostly played striker in conference play. Defender Taylor Bennett has left the backline and roamed upfield more frequently, registering a shot in six of the Orange’s last seven games.For the healthy players, seeing a teammate grimace in pain and not return to the game takes an emotional toll.“We have to try and protect the players,” Wheddon said. “Student-athlete welfare is the main thing, not pushing them to the point that they break.”While Syracuse’s injury troubles have primarily affected its performance in games, they have, at times, altered how SU practices, too. At the end of each session, the Orange has an intrasquad scrimmage. When three or more injured players are on the sidelines in a sweatshirt and sweatpants, it makes simulating a live, 11 versus 11 game impossible for Syracuse’s 23-player roster.SU’s injuries have been unavoidable, Wheddon said, as none of them have occurred in practice, while most have been caused by contact in games. The players and coaches have exercised caution in training and are doing their best to distribute minutes so nobody is worked too hard. Yet players continue to drop.“It’s really hard to watch your best players go down,” Hostage said. “It’s not fun for anyone. But it’s part of the game, it’s something we’ve had to deal with.” Comments Published on October 24, 2018 at 10:32 pm Contact David: ddschnei@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

The best way to stay up to date on the current lines is to become a BetQL subscriber.Pittsburgh Pirates at Washington NationalsStarting Pitchers: Trevor Williams vs. Patrick CorbinMoney Line: PIT +155, WAS -185Run Line: PIT +1.5 (-140), WAS -1.5 (+120)Total: O/U 8The Nationals are rightfully the favorites in this matchup and have the pitching advantage in this game with Patrick Corbin taking the mound. With that being said, the Nationals bullpen has continued to be a problem spot, and it’s hard to feel good about them holding any tight lead in the later innings of games. The BetQL models are listing the Nationals as favorites in this game but are handicapping the line closer to Pittsburgh +125 underdogs rather than the +155 number that they sit at right now.BetQL Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates ML (+155)Tampa Bay Rays at Toronto Blue JaysStarting Pitchers: Ryan Stanek vs. Trent ThorntonMoney Line: TB -140, TOR +120Run Line: TB -1.5 (+115), TOR +1.5 (-135)  Total: O/U 8.5More times than not I’m really looking for value on underdogs with the BetQL models. When I do look at favorites, it’s on the run line to provide the most upside. However, tonight we have some great value on the Rays to win outright as -140 favorites as they travel for the first game of their three-game series with the Blue Jays. Tampa has started the season on a tear, going 10-3, and along with the Mariners could end up being one of the most pleasant surprises in the league. The pitching matchup is fairly even between Ryan Stanek and Jays rookie Trent Thornton, but the Rays are clearly the better defensive and hitting team. The BetQL models see value on this line all the way up to -173, and with over 70 percent of total money being bet on Tampa Bay, expect this line to move closer to that number as first pitch approaches.BetQL Pick: Tampa Bay Rays ML (-140) Colorado Rockies at San Francisco GiantsStarting Pitchers: Chad Bettis vs Drew Pomeranz​Money Line: COL +120, SF -140Run Line: COL +1.5 (-180), SF -1.5 (+150)  Total: O/U 8The Rockies have gotten off to a terrible start and need to get a win tonight against their rebuilding division rivals. The Rockies are listed as +120 underdogs in this matchup, but the BetQL models are handicapping this game as COL -128, which provides us with a great value opportunity on taking an underdog to win outright.BetQL Pick: Colorado Rockies ML (+120) Last night there wasn’t a whole lot of value on the board, but we took shots on a few picks that didn’t pay off. However, tonight we have an excellent slate of MLB action that offers value on both underdogs and favorites. A couple of nice weekend series are lining up for us, including Pirates-Nationals, Rays-Blue Jays, Angels-Cubs, White Sox-Yankees, Phillies-Marlins, A’s-Rangers, and Brewers-Dodgers, among others, and we’re hoping to start things off right with some winning bets on Friday night.Watch ChangeUp, a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZN  Check out BetQL Mobile App’s Trending Picks and Public Betting tools before making all your bets, and follow me on Twitter (@DFSBenj) for even more NFL, NBA, MLB and PGA daily fantasy and sports betting content.last_img read more

Lumberjacks Earn #SouthlandStrong Victory in Waco

first_imgPlaying near his hometown of Killeen, Texas, the guard helped SFA erase a six-point deficit with 2:28 left by scoring or assisting on each of the three baskets during the ‘Jacks’ 7-0 run to end the game. FIRST HALF• Both the ‘Jacks and Bears had answers for each others’ buckets through the first 13 minutes of the defense-oriented opening half. Neither team opened up a lead greater than four points in that span and a 5-0 run that finished with a reverse layup from Karl Nicholas gave SFA its largest lead of the half at 21-18 with 6:53 left. • Baylor answered the ‘Jacks’ momentary surge from downtown with a 11-0 run that saw five different Bears score points. King McClure finished the scoring spree with a three-pointer that put SFA at a 29-21 disadvantage with 3:42 remaining. • The final 6:52 of the opening frame saw the ‘Jacks go cold from the field. SFA connected on just a single field goal in that span while the Bears embarked on a 15-4 run to conclude the frame. • SFA’s only field goal through the final 6:52 came in the form of a driving layup from Bogues with 1.5 seconds left that gave the senior a team-high seven at the break. Aside from the make, SFA kept it a single-digit game by getting free throw makes from Bain and Fitzgerald late in the stanza. • Despite shooting .333/.250/.500 through the frame, SFA kept things within single digits by forcing 12 turnovers and allowing the Bears to shoot just 3-of-13 (23.1-percent) from long range. SECOND HALF• Going like gangbusters early in the deciding frame, Bogues took off on a personal 9-0 run through the opening 2:53 of the frame. That single-handed scoring spree included a fallaway three-pointer in the corner that put the visitors up 34-33 with 17:07 left. • Baylor, however, netted the next five points and went ahead 38-34 on a three-point make by Matthew Mayer with 15:17 left.• Davonte Fitzgerald showed up in a big way from there, scoring the ‘Jacks’ next eight points which included a big-time two handed flush. Those buckets helped SFA trade punches with Baylor and Kevon Harris slung in a three-pointer to put the visitors up 45-44 with 12:12 to go. • Following that three-pointer, however, SFA went cold from the field again. The ‘Jacks put in just one field goal in the next eight minutes while Baylor turned to Tristan Clark to try and overcome SFA’s pressure defense. Clark pumped in eight point during the Bears’ 11-2 run and capped that surge with a jumper that put the ‘Jacks in a 55-47 hole with 4:49 to go. • Mitchell Seraille finally ended that run when he punched home a put-back dunk off of a miss from Harris with 4:40 left. • Clark kept the Bears ahead by six, 58-52, by splitting a pair at the free throw line with 2:23 left. From there, however, Bogues took control. • The senior found Fitzgerald in the paint for a short jumper before sinking a contested three-pointer to pull SFA within one with 40 ticks to go. After Makai Mason bricked a running jumper, Harris gathered the rebound and dished to Bogues who finished off the Bears with his make at the horn. KEY PERFORMERS/STATISTICS OF NOTE• Bogues was the different for the ‘Jacks, but a number of other players had big games, too. Fitzgerald finished with 15 points and all but three were scored in the second half. The graduate forward went 5-of-8 from the field during the second half.• Harris added 11 in the game and came up clutch from three-point land. The junior went 3-of-4 from downtown and made both of his long range tries in the second half to help lead the ‘Jacks to victory. • As a team, SFA shot an impressive .520/.556/.750 in the final 20 minutes of action. As impressive as the ‘Jacks’ offense was, their defense may have been more eye-popping as SFA held Baylor to a shooting spilt of .300/.111/.500 in the final frame. The Bears went just 1-of-11 from three-point land in the frame and finished the game 4-of-24 from downtown. • Tristan Clark led the way for the Bears by putting in a game-high 24 points on the strength of a 9-for-9 effort from the field. Clark drilled six of his 10 free throw tries, too, and totaled seven of the Bears’ 39 rebounds. • The Bears’ Mark Vital skied to grab a game-high 12 rebounds while adding seven points and a game-high five steals.• SFA forced 18 turnovers and turned them into 14 points on the night. The ‘Jacks finished -5 (39-34) in the rebounding department but used a .423/.382 edge in field goal percentage as well as a sizable .412/.167 edge in three-point shooting to spring the upset. • Tuesday night’s win was the ‘Jacks first win over Baylor since 2003 and SFA’s first victory over a Big 12 foe since besting West Virginia in the opening round of the 2016 NCAA Tournament at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. • The win was also the ‘Jacks’ first true road win of the season. It marked SFA’s first road win at a power five institution since Dec. 16, 2017, when the ‘Jacks defeated LSU in Baton Rouge, La.COMING UP NEXT• Friday evening at 6:30 p.m., SFA begins a three-game home stand by welcoming Arlington Baptist to William R. Johnson Coliseum. The ‘Jacks’ penultimate non-conference showdown of the regular season will be broadcast nationwide on ESPN+ and the ESPN app. POSTGAME QUOTESSFA head coach Kyle KellerOpening Statement…”I’m dressed in this shirt because it’s kind of an emotional night for our guys. We’ve been shorthanded, we’re down five players, we’ve really struggled, we’re not who we are. Our guys really had a lot of unity. We’ve been preaching staying together. We did stay together tonight for the first time. We just caught Baylor on, they just beat the best home team in America at Arizona, we just happened to play them on the right night. They didn’t make any shots. They’re not going to go 4-for-24 from three and miss free throws at the end. It was just one of those nights for us. Shannon (Bogues) makes two great plays at the end, not just shots, but really guarded (Makai) Mason. It just went our way, just one of those nights for us. It’s not going to happen, one in a 100 maybe. Coach Drew, I don’t think people appreciate what a great program, what he’s done. He’s lifted this program from the abyss to a top-25 program in the country. We’re just blessed. But I think our kids did really fine tonight.”After tonight’s win, @coach_keller12 had that swag up to ? #AxeEm pic.twitter.com/5W5NQoSiCF— SFA Basketball (@SFA_MBB) December 19, 2018 Story by Charlie Hurley, SFA Media RelationsWACO, Texas – “At the beginning of the game, what did I say?” asked SFA men’s basketball senior guard Shannon Bogues to his assembled teammates on the water-soaked floor of the Baylor volleyball locker room. “I said this might be the game where we dump the water on coach after.”As it turned out, Bogues was correct. SFA’s senior guard drove the length of the court and put the finishing touches on a 21-point performance by sinking a game-winning layup at the buzzer to help the SFA men’s basketball team defeat Baylor, 59-58, at the Ferrell Center Tuesday night.  On Bogues’ game-winner…”He has been in that opportunity a few times where he’s pulled up. He doesn’t lack confidence. When he’s in space, he can get anywhere he wants to go. He’s learning the game more. This dude is so quick with the ball. To me, I think he’s as good as anybody in America. I’ll ride with this dude every game. He’s as good as anyone in the Big 12 in my opinion. He can play against anybody.”On the win…”This team, when it was built, was built better. We’d have won 30 games this year. Unfortunately, we are where we are. I wouldn’t want to play us in March when we get our guys back. That’s just my opinion. We got to get there. We’re not very good right now. We had one night tonight, now we’ve got to sustain it. Baylor helped us. We played them after they beat Arizona, at Arizona. How many people patted them on the back since that game? I would hate to be coaching their guys after that. We couldn’t have got them at a better time. This is the hardest game for them to play all year long after they win at the McKale Center. Our phones are going to blow up all night long. The hardest thing to do is trying to get our guys back on a level field. I’ve got to trust our guys’ characters enough to say ‘hey, that game’s over, we’re moving on to the next.'”SFA Senior Shannon BoguesOn his play down the stretch…”I shot it with confidence. Once I released it, I knew it was going in. But then, I knew we had to get a defensive stop. Once we got a defensive stop, I just drove to the basket.”On staying in rhythm on the last play…”Like I said, confidence. I just knew we had to get a bucket. I tried to get fouled, I just ended up scoring.”last_img read more
